Update: Third of Internet Explorer users at risk from attacks
Microsoft on Friday said that both Internet Explorer 10 and its predecessor, IE9, contained an unpatched vulnerability, but that hackers were currently exploiting only the newest, IE10.
The extension of the vulnerability to IE9 followed confirmation earlier yesterday that active attacks are compromising the newer IE10 and hijacking PCs running the browser.
"Microsoft is aware of limited, targeted attacks against Internet Explorer 10. Our initial investigation has revealed that Internet Explorer 9 and Internet Explorer 10 are affected," a Microsoft spokesperson said via email today.
With both IE9 and IE10 vulnerable, it means that about a third of all those using Internet Explorer are at risk.
